My computer started giving me a no signal check cable screen a couple of weeks ago, so i quickly went to trying different parts. Si had tried a new power supply and different video card and it went to no avil. I then bought a new mobo and the same thing happened. So i did the same thing with the new mobo and when I replaced the video card again it boot up. Now i want to be sure if that means the graphics card and the old motherboard are dead, and how i can make sure of this. Are there any tests i can do to make sure my mobo is dead and how can i tell if it is infact dead.

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. You could try booting up with all RAM removed. If you do not hear beep codes, the motherboard probably died. This assumes the system speaker is working.
